One of the things that's truly frustrating about being on the cusp of most entertainment news is that I learn a little bit about a lot of films that, sadly, I've no way of seeing ... well, until they drop onto either a streaming platform I'm familiar with or a distributor I have a relationship with comes calling with a DVD or Bluray. So many of these smaller releases really do look like they might have something to offer audiences; while I'd love to cover them in greater detail, I just don't (yet) have the access to the movers and the shakers who can line me up with some connections. I do work pretty hard at keeping my name and SciFiHistory.Net's presence out there these days, so let's all keep our fingers crossed that I'll eventually make it over that hump.
But -- in any event -- I saw the trailer for 2019's The Long Walk on a competitor's website, and I thought it worthy of sharing here. Apparently, this is a Laotian film that tinkers in some very creative ways with the conventions of the traditional Horror/Ghost Story while also dipping just a bit into the possibilities of time travel. (Haven't I been telling you folks for so long that these genres overlap like you wouldn't believe?) Looking at its IMDB.com citations, the flick has garnered some praise on the festival circuit (sometimes that's a good thing, sometimes not so much); and while I didn't find the coming attraction anything Earth-shattering, it still managed to pique my interest just a bit.
So ... trailer is below. You folks know what to do.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
